The Color Box: Blue Edition with Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, Baroness X, Blush Lacquers, Tonic Nail Polish, SuperMoon Lacquer swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonShoot – is it really Saturday already? Dang – I had so many plans for this week with my kids and I think we got one accomplished (up for a sunrise on Monday). Oh well, we’ve got all summer to do stuff, right? How about some summery blue polishes from The Color Box: Blue Edition today? For some reason I’ve really been digging on blue polishes lately so I had to buy this box when it came out. (Psst, the pink edition is currently available for pre-order, and it’s featuring one of my favorite brands, Bad Bitch Polish!)

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer Siren’s Fever Dream S.E. Encore swatch + review

Gift buttonFinishing out this month of March I have a freebie mini polish from Blue-Eye Girl Lacquer called Siren’s Fever Dream S.E. Encore. This was given as a freebie because my order took long, but in reality, I don’t think it actually took that long. But still, it was a nice surprise & gesture on the part of the maker. Okay, enough talkie talkie!

Siren’s Fever Dream S.E. Encore is a red shimmer polish with iridescent glitters. I think this also had a bit of holographic sparkle but I can’t remember! This had a good thickness, and it dries matte. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

It is nice when makers go the extra mile. What are your thoughts on this polish?

Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer April Showers collection

press sampleGood morning to you lovely readers! I hope you are having a spectacular day today.¬†Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer is releasing the April Showers collection this coming Sunday at 3p.m. EST. There are six polishes in this collection: Dogwood, Peruvian Lily, Cherry Blossom, Purple Phlox, Lady Slipper, and Hydrangea.¬†I have two to show you: Cherry Blossom and Purple Phlox. I’ve used OPI base & topcoats with both of them.

Cherry Blossom is a pastel pink crelly with a teal to purple shift. This has got to be a record Рthe first time that I really liked a soft pink polish! The shimmer was so hard to capture, but it totally makes this polish come alive. I did find the formula on this to be a bit thick. Without topcoat, it has almost a satin-y finish. This is 3 coats.

Purple Phlox is a purple crème with blue to purple iridescent micro glitters. Once again, the glitters were so hard to capture but they were definitely there! A really beautiful spring polish. This is almost a jelly-like consistency. This is three coats.

The April Showers collection will be released this coming Sunday at 3p.m. EST. Julie will also be restocking a few of the Core Line, Winter Collection and Valentine’s Day collection polishes. Keep her shop bookmarked, and you can stay up-to-date with her on Facebook, instagram, and pinterest.

Just a note from the maker:  Please note, sadly, my cost of production has increased due to the rising prices of raw materials.  As such, I have had to increase the cost of future collections.  All old collection polishes will retain their old pricing.  From here on out, the new pricing structure will be $8.50 for glitters/cremes/shimmers, $12 for shifters/duos/holos, and $13 for LEs.  

I have to say that I’m really digging on this collection, just based off these two polishes. Julie was going for soft colors with unique shimmers giving a vibe of florals coated in rain, and I think that’s a perfect description. I’d love to know what you think of these two! Let me know in the comments. Until tomorrow,

All-Indie Radiant Orchid nail polishes

press sample

Good morning all! This is a post I’ve been working on for some time, and I’m excited to finally be able to share all these pretties with you! I reached out to a lot of different independent polish makers to see if they were making their own version of Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Color of the Year. I’ve had a great response! (Some of these were provided to me as a press sample, and some I have purchased with my own money.) Hit after the collage for all the lovelies!
